Enrolled Rankings: Making an impact on campus

Now that the Class of 2010 is in school and already making an impact this season, Rivals.com has recalculated its final team recruiting rankings to account for prospects that did not make it to campus for the 2010 season.

Attrition in the USC class dropped the Trojans from No. 1 to No. 3 with the big hit coming from five-star OT Seantrel Henderson and his decision to play at Miami.

The Gators lost two Rivals250 signees but brought a class loaded with elite talent to campus and claimed the No. 1 spot in the enrolled rankings.

Here is the enrolled top 25.

RANKINGS: 2010 Enrolled Team Rankings | 2010 Rivals250 | 2011 Rivals250

Enrolled Team Rankings Top 25
1. Florida
Signing Day Rank: 2
Biggest Loss: S Jordan Haden
Buzz: The Florida class lost two Rivals250 prospects when safety Jordan Haden and receiver Adrian Coxson each decided not to stick around in Gainesville. Even with the losses, the Gators locked up the top spot when five-star OT Seantrel Henderson didn't honor his Signing Day commitment to USC.
2. Texas
Signing Day Rank: 3
Biggest Loss: None
Buzz: Texas got its entire ultra-talented class to campus and WR Mike Davis, DE Jackson Jeffcoat, DT Taylor Bible, WR Darius White and LB Jordan Hicks are just a few of the big names vying for early playing time in Austin.
3. USC
Signing Day Rank: 1
Biggest Loss: OT Seantrel Henderson
Buzz: The Tojans have taken some hits this offseason and the biggest blow to this class was Henderson's decision to enroll at Miami. He wasn't the only signee who decided to head to the Sunshine State, as junior college linebacker Glen Stanley ended up at Florida State.
4. LSU
Signing Day Rank: 6
Biggest Loss: OG Elliott Porter
Buzz: The Tigers managed to get all of their signees in school for a second straight year. In fact, they brought too many players to campus in 2010 and OL Elliott Porter has transferred to Kentucky as the odd man out in the class.
5. Alabama
Signing Day Rank: 5
Biggest Loss: DE Alfy Hill
Buzz: The Alabama class stays at No. 5 but was hurt by the loss of Rivals100 DE Alfy Hill. Look for this class to provide the Tide with some early secondary help from DeMarcus Milliner, Jarrick Williams, John Fulton and Nick Perry.
6. Auburn
Signing Day Rank: 4
Biggest Loss: OT Shon Coleman
Buzz: Five-star offensive lineman Shon Coleman was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in the spring and is now undergoing treatment with the hope of returning to football. Two five-star signees did make it to campus as Cameron Newton will start at quarterback and RB Michael Dyer will share carries in the Auburn backfield.
7. Oklahoma
Signing Day Rank: 7
Biggest Loss: None
Buzz: Oklahoma's class is intact and making an impact on campus. The Sooners could get early contributions from RB Roy Finch, WR Kenny Stills, S Tony Jefferson, CB Aaron Colvin and TE/FB Trey Millard to name a few.
8. Florida State
Signing Day Rank: 10
Biggest Loss: WR De'Joshua Johnson
Buzz: Four-star WR De'Joshua Johnson will have to take the JUCO route, but Florida State's defense should get a boost from the talents of DB Lamarcus Joyner and linebackers Christian Jones, Jeff Luc and Telvin Smith.
Signing Day Rank: 8
Biggest Loss: LB Josh Shirley
Buzz: The June arrest of freshmen Paul Richardson, Shaquille Richardson and Josh Shirley resulted in their dismissal by coach Rick Neuheisel. Anthony Barr and RB Malcolm Jones should be fixtures in the UCLA offense for years to come.
10. Tennessee
Signing Day Rank: 9
Biggest Loss: S Eddrick Loften
Buzz: The Vols were hoping for immediate help and depth from DT John Brown, S Eddrick Loften and DB Dave Clark that will not come. They will get OL Jawuan James, WR Da'Rick Rogers, WR Justin Hunter, DE Corey Miller and others on the field quickly.
11. Oregon
Signing Day Rank: 13
Biggest Loss: CB Troy Hill
Buzz: The talented Oregon class should provide solid depth for a veteran squad in 2010. The class features future stars on both sides of ball that the Ducks won't need to rush into action.
12. Penn State
Signing Day Rank: 12
Biggest Loss: ATH Shyquawn Pullium
Buzz: Penn State fans won't have to wait to see their quarterback of the future as freshman Robert Bolden was recently named the starter for the opener.
13. Miami
Signing Day Rank: 24
Biggest Loss: DT Tavadis Glenn
Buzz: The Hurricanes lost three and added two prospects after Signing Day. The additions were big ones in five-star athlete Latwan Anderson and five-star lineman Seantrel Henderson.
14. Texas A&M
Signing Day Rank: 15
Biggest Loss: RB D.J. Jones
Buzz: The loss of four-star RB D.J. Jones is disappointing, but two other four-star running back recruits did make it to campus and OT Luke Joeckel has already cracked the starting lineup.
15. Ole Miss
Signing Day Rank: 17
Biggest Loss: TE Cordell Giles
Buzz: JUCO transfer Wayne Dorsey is ready to step in at DE and freshmen Jeff Scott and Brishen Mathews have been turning heads since their arrival.
16. Notre Dame
Signing Day Rank: 14
Biggest Loss: OT Matt James
Buzz: Offensive lineman Matt James died tragically before making it to campus and DB Spencer Boyd left school after enrolling early. But the class has already made its mark on the depth chart and TJ Jones has earned a starting role.
17. Georgia
Signing Day Rank: 16
Biggest Loss: DE Jalen Fields
Buzz: A class loaded with talent on the defensive side of the ball took a hit when Jalen Fields didn't make it into school. New defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has a nice infusion of young talent to help ease his transition.
18. Missouri
Signing Day Rank: 21
Biggest Loss: None
Buzz: The Tigers signed Gary Pinkel's best class yet and everyone made it to campus. He has already said he expects to play RB Henry Josey, RB Marcus Murphy, WR Marcus Lucas, CB E.J. Gaines and TE Eric Waters this season.
19. Michigan
Signing Day Rank: 20
Biggest Loss: S Demar Dorsey
Buzz: The Wolverines could have used the talents of Dorsey, but CB Cullen Christian and QB Devin Gardner are just two of the potential stars in this class.
20. Clemson
Signing Day Rank: 18
Biggest Loss: WR Martavis Bryant
Buzz: Rivals100 WR Martavis Bryant and four-star DE Corey Crawford can't help Clemson on the field this year as they will play the 2010 season at Hargrave Military Academy.
21. Cal
Signing Day Rank: 11
Biggest Loss: DE Chris Martin
Buzz: Cal's loss was Florida's gain when five-star DE Chris Martin decided to transfer and will be eligible to play for the Gators in 2011.
22. Stanford
Signing Day Rank: 26
Biggest Loss: QB Dallas Lloyd
Buzz: Stanford moves into the Top 25 with a solid class led by Rivals250 QB Brett Nottingham and DE Blake Lueders.
23. Washington
Signing Day Rank: 28
Biggest Loss: S Chris Young
Buzz: Second-year coach Steve Sarkisian needs his first full class of recruits to grow up quickly.
24. Michigan State
Signing Day Rank: 30
Biggest Loss: LB Justin Wilson
Buzz: Five-star William Gholston has moved from linebacker to defensive end during camp and his impact is likely to be felt early and often.
25. Virginia Tech
Signing Day Rank: 22
Biggest Loss: DE Justin Taylor
Buzz: Two linemen didn't make it to school, but six really good ones did.
Dropped out of the Top 25:
No. 31 South Carolina, No. 34 Nebraska, No. 36 West Virginia (The rest of the top 50)
